Join us for the 5th edition of this 100 km women's ride. We are aiming for 120 riders—at least as many as 2018. This event is part of a series of Women’s bike rides happening on this day, all over the World. We'll be the first peeps to complete it. We organise riders to start in different groups by fitness level. You can start in group 1 if you need more time.
There is an option to complete the first lap of the bike route only—that's 66km. After a coffee you may just get the inspiration and motivation to continue! The course is undulating and runs through beautiful local countryside.
This is a celebration of womens cycling—it's a positive, supportive environment and not too serious.
Go onto the website or FB site to find out more information.
The Schedule: (We aim to be eating cake by 2:30pm)
8:00–8:15 am: Those who are aiming for their first 100k ride or know it’s going to be a big day out
8:30–8:45: Those who think it’s still a long way but they will manage it with a bit of inspiration from their mates. You guys have probably done a 100 k ride in before & have recently done 50-60 km in preparation. You maybe even taking part in some triathlons before Xmas
9:15am: Those who are confident they can finish 100 k without a coffee break & need to be challenged a little more. Some of you maybe aiming for a half ironman before Xmas and want to get some good training in with your girlfriends.
What you need to know…
- This is a fun, un-timed, un-marshalled ride on open roads and all riders are taking part at their own risk
- I will give you a map and instructions however you will need to look after yourself in terms of following the roads—there will not be marshals
- You need to come prepared to fix your own punctures so bring a fix-it kit with 2 tubes and a pump. Please bring along a road-safe bike.
- Although you will be passing the café twice on the ride you should take food and drink with you (as well as your visa and coffee card!)
